I've been googling for a JQuery example. I have an aspx page. I have a link on it. When user clicks it, i want to popup a JQuery popup. On it, i want (for now) to have a dropdown of states. I have list of states in the database...read from database and bind to it...

I can do this with Telerik control but i want to use JQuery. I think I need AJax to read from database. But not sure.
Anyone with an example?

Look at the jquery example at the bottom of this page:

For states, though, it seems as if it would be more efficient to simply populate the list on load.

To avoid typing (if you recognize the value of populating on load) :
http://www.billsternberger.net/html/state-dropdown-list/ provides a list in the form
<option value="AL">Alabama</option>
<option value="AK">Alaska</option>
<option value="AZ">Arizona</option>

Open in new window

and so on for the United States of America.
